Threat Focused Shooting

April 23 • 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Price: $125

4 Hour Course

Prerequisite Course(s): Defensive Pistol 1 and 2



Triangle Shooting Academy staff have combined traditional pistol marksmanship techniques and factored in the physiological responses and reactions that are going to occur during a critical life event shooting.   Common physiological responses are tunnel vision, the loss of near sight focus, loss of monocular vision and auditory exclusion. To put it simply, you probably will not be able to see your sights.


The concept of threat focused shooting is not new and has been called point shooting, index shooting, combat shooting, ect.  What is new is that Triangle Shooting Academy is embracing and emphasizing threat focused shooting in a close range defensive encounter.  Speed is paramount in a close quarter gunfight. Threat focused shooting allows you to shoot in half the normal time.


Students will have already learned proper marksmanship fundamentals before taking this course.  The better your marksmanship skills are, the better you will be at threat focused shooting.
